Abstract

This paper is aimed at describing the presence of the Latin Physiologus in the Liber Glossarum. After a brief introduction to the Latin Physiologus and a census of the Liber Glossarum items drawn on it, two noteworthy attitudes of the Liber Glossarum are outlined: distrust in the Physiologus stories, clearly expressed at least for the items up to section FE, and no interest in allegorical and moral comments. Finally, a couple of Liber Glossarum entries from the Latin Physiologus (AS 171 Aspides, PE 217 Pelicanus) are analysed in comparison with the text given directly by the existing versions of the Latin Physiologus: the Liber Glossarum comes out as an important means of transmission of ancient stages of the Latin Physiologus text which would be otherwise lost.
